Since it’s the holiday season, I decided to gather some great gift ideas for readers and writers.
1. CHOCOLATE BOOK
From Li-lac, my favorite chocolate store (thanks to Kelli Stanley who got me hooked on it one year at ThrillerFest), you can get this 7″ x 5″ chocolate book in milk, dark or white chocolate for the chocolate lover in your reading or writing circle. In terms of their other chocolates, they’re all great, but I especially love the raspberry jelly bars, marshmallow bars, and nonpareils.
2. SCRABBLE BOOK LOVERS EDITION
The classic scrabble game redesigned for book lovers gives bonus points for literary words such as author names, book titles, or literary characters. “Plot Twist cards add suspense and drama and custom game play.”
3. AQUA NOTES
“If you find that some of your best ideas and insights are generated in the tranquility and solitude of the shower…then AquaNotes® is for you! These waterproof notepads help you capture and preserve your ideas before they’re forgotten!”
4. BOOKWORM SOCKS
Blue and yellow tube socks with the word “bookworm” knitted down the side. Keeps you warm during those winter nights while you’re curled up with a good book.
5. IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT: A Game of First Lines For People Who Love to Read
A fun game for families or adults. “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night covers everything from novels to poetry, from mysteries to children’s books, from science fiction to books made into movies, and six other categories. You’ll know more than you think, and you’ll get introduced to some great new reads along the way!”
6. THE STORYMATIC
“The Storymatic is a writing prompt, a teaching tool, a parlor game, and a toy. Combine a few of the 500+ cards, and watch a story take shape before your eyes. No wires. No screens. No batteries… Just a box of pure imagination.”
7. GONE READING T-SHIRT
8. BANNED BOOK CHILDREN’S TITLES BRACELET
“The bracelet features The Adventures of Captain Underpants, King & King, Annie on My Mind, To Kill A Mockingbird, In the Night Kitchen, Athletic Shorts, and Blubber. ”
9. FOLDED BOOK ART
“These custom made sculptures are made from carefully folding the pages of recycled books to create different designs.”
10. VINTAGE TYPEWRITER SCARF
100% silk scarf “featuring a large hand-printed image of a 1934 Underwood typewriter.”
